The Villanova Wildcats and the St. John’s Red Storm will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Madison Square Garden.

ABOUT VILLANOVA (16-1, 4-1 Big East): Hart (19.8 points) leads the Wildcats in scoring, but they are far from a one-man show with Jenkins (14.2) offering another solid season and Jalen Brunson (14.4) emerging as a sophomore. Brunson has reached double-figure scoring in seven straight games and has shot at least 50 percent in each of those contests. Jenkins was 4-of-8 from the arc against Xavier and has made at least three 3s in five consecutive games.

ABOUT ST. JOHN’S (8-10, 2-3): In Monday’s 83-55 loss to Georgetown, St. John’s made just five field goals in the second half and totaled only 18 points after intermission. Basically everyone struggled for the Red Storm, although Shamorie Ponds did record 12 points to continue his string of scoring 10-plus points in every game since the season opener. Marcus LoVett added 10 points and also has scored in double figures in all but one game he has played this season.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wildcats listed as 12.5-point favorites versus the Red Storm, while the game’s total is sitting at 150.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

St. John’s was a 83-55 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Hoyas. They failed to cover the +6.5-point spread as underdogs.

In their last action, Villanova was a 79-54 winner at home against Musketeers. They covered the -8-point spread as favorites.

Villanova is officially back on track, which likely will be bad news for St. John’s when the Big East schools clash on Saturday. The visiting Wildcats dropped to No. 3 in the polls after a loss at Butler but have rebounded with solid home victories against Marquette and Xavier.

Senior standouts Kris Jenkins and Josh Hart notched 20 points apiece in the win over Xavier. Villanova limited the Musketeers to 29.3 percent shooting – 6-of-32 from long range – in winning for the 22nd time in 23 games. “If you focus on defense and rebounds,” Jenkins told reporters, “most of the time you’ll win.” The Red Storm’s three-game winning streak against Syracuse, Butler and DePaul is a distant memory at this point following recent losses by 13, 15 and 28 points.
